    I find circumcision shocking, at least the whole in the ear closes on its own if it is not used.......

  • I believe that you do what you feel is best for your child and if one wants to care for pierced ears in an infant - what ever.

  • I did my daughter ears at 2 months. Right after her first set of shots. I was glad I had mine done at such a young age and hope she is too.

  • Dreadful? Completely!
    Shocking? Unfortunately not...

  • I think it is silly. I don't understand the point of it. They are babies, not fashion models. And I'd be afraid of a baby swallowing an earring or worse, choking on one. Just doesn't seem worth it.

  • I don't think anything is wrong with it. I don't know any adult who says, "Boy, I really wish my parents hadn't pierced my ears!" It's a personal decision for the child's parents.
